the other debate where he made stuff up and didn't know his own tax plan, making them stick to what they've been the last six or seven months. >> this is where i think paul ryan will have pressure on him and where i expect paul ryan to perform very well. i mean, i found obama's debate performance totally lacking in specifics. we still don't know what his tax plan is or his deficit plan or his budget plan. but paul ryan has become the personification for the democrats of all that is callous and cold and evil about the romney campaign. so ryan now has i think an opportunity to not only explain his plan more importantly romney's plan, but to explain it in a way that is compassionate and human. and i expect he'll do a very good job of that. >> there's a tricky thing that ryan has to do. and i think you suggested it there, carly. there's clearly a distinction between the ryan plan. actually, there have been multiple ryan plans on multiple fronts. >> that's right. >> and the romney plan. so ryan can't get lured into a debate over the specifics. >> i agree with you. >> here's the problem, mitt
that president obama has not raised taxes while he has been in office. seriously? mitt romney is dropping that argument? he doesn't think president obama has raised taxes? no, not really. his campaign later saying, never mind what mitt romney just said. that's not actually what he believes. sure, he said president obama didn't raise taxes, and president obama didn't raise taxes, but really, mitt romney officially thinks that he did. they have done this over and over and over and over again, on big issues like health reform, on small issues like whether he met a guy or not. and it is a ridiculous technique. i mean, think about what this means for the long run. i mean, the romney campaign is training the country to not believe this guy when he is talking. they're training the country to feel that, you know, wherever you hear mitt romney saying something today, don't worry, it doesn't really matter. it is all subject to revision later. long-term, this is a weird technique. it has been a strange political technique from the get-go this year. but mostly, it has worked for them. them correcting
was mitt romney was dishonest in the debate he didn't tell the truth about his tax plan he tried to get away from some of the positions he took in the past. >> i expect kermit to come out and attack obama. the obama team has run a competent technical campaign got rattled. they are trying to find their groove. on one hand they want to talk flipflops. then extremism. they have to come out with one theme. >> let me ask you about something mitt romney said yesterday. he was with "the des moines register" in iowa and talking about abortion rights. he said quote there's no legislation with regards to abortion that i'm familiar with that would be part of my agenda. then several hours later his spokesperson said governor romney would of course support legislation aimed at providing greater protections tore life. what is the mitt romney position going back and forth. he's not on the same page. >> hopefully the campaign will get on page with him. he's doing great. >> he said during the republican primary debate he would work to overturn roe v. wade and defund planned parenthood. now he said there
: he had changed his rhetoric on gun rights, gay rights, climate change and the tax pledge. he lost in iowa, new hampshire and florida. just one month into the primaries, romney's campaign was over. >> i entered this race because i love america. i feel i have to now stand aside for our party and for our country. >> narrator: romney had fallen short, unable to secure the presidential nomination. (crowd chanting): mitt! mitt! >> the mitt romney in 2008 was partly a politician and very much a business person and totally a novice to what it meant to be a national candidate. >> narrator: he had spent $45 million of his own money on the campaign. >> on the plane back to boston, following his announcement, he turned to me and he said, "eric, what are you going to do? we've got to figure out what our people are going to do. they're going to be moving on into other jobs." this was not a person who was thinking about running again for president. i think he felt he had his opportunity and the door had closed to him. >> it's a whole new political world for the president. >> narrator: november,
